Temptalia Asks You

Do you prefer using a separate sunscreen product or want it included in your moisturizer/foundation? Why do you go one way or the other?

I prefer it in my moisturizer over anything else, just because I feel like I get great coverage with a moisturizer vs. a foundation. I do also have separate sunscreen-only products, because when I know I’ll be out in strong sun all day (e.g. playing tennis), I’ll opt for stronger SPF.

P.S. – How is everyone’s weekend going? What did/will you do?

I used Rollickin’ paint pot on lid, Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow on inner lid, Freshwater eyeshadow on middle lid, Deep Truth eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Electric Eel eyeshadow on middle-outer lid, Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow above crease, White Tie eyeshadow on brow bone and inner tearduct, Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow on lower lash line, Electric Eel eyeshadow on outer lower lash line, and Feline kohl power on lower water line. I wore Hipness blush with Daisylight beauty powder on cheeks. I had Strawbaby lipstick with Apex 3D glass on my lips.

Temptalia Asks You

What do you look for in a perfect foundation? Have you found the perfect one? Come close? Share your recommendations and how they measure up against your requirements!

Studio Fix Fluid is the closest I’ve come. For me, I need a light-to-medium foundation that has a matte finish that doesn’t look powdery/cakey. It should be relatively sweat proof and have SPF 15 in it.

WWD reports…

“Esteban gave me very great inspiration,” she said, naming words such as “organic” and “pebble.” “I went a bit further along that path and went to see Monet’s water lilies at the Orangerie.” The lilacs and pale blues she noted were then channeled into makeup. To fete Cortazar’s debut Ungaro collection, according to Dowsett, MAC will launch a limited edition, co-branded makeup line this October.
